Wide Awake in Dreamland is Pat Benatar’s seventh studio album, and her eighth album overall, released in 1988. After a string of successful albums, this was her last rock-oriented album of the 1980s, before she would go on to try a blues-based sound with True Love in 1991.
The album’s lead single, “All Fired Up”, peaked at number 19 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 25 on the Cash Box Top 100. It was nominated for a Grammy Award but did not win.
The album was certified Gold by the RIAA and eventually sold approximately 700,000 copies in the United States.
